Respectfully Submitted, 
The Family 



Forever in our hearts 

We thought of you with LOVE today But that is nothing new. 
We thought about you yesterday And the days before that too. 

We think of you in Silence 

We often speak your name, 

Now all we have is memories and your Picture Frame. 

Your memory is our Keepsake with which we'll never part 

GOD has you in his keeping 

We have you in our heart. 

LaMonte K. Tilley

plishments we have attained. Always remember

The test of the ages 

Few generations have the opportunity 

to witness the passing of one millennium and 

the beginning of another. Before racing forward 

into the 2 1 st century, take a moment to 

reflect back on the people, places, and 

events of the past 1 ,000 years.
